DEAR EVAN HANSEN description

DEAR EVAN HANSEN – The Tony Award®-Winning Best Musical

DEAR EVAN HANSEN is an award-winning, multi-generational, uplifting, powerful and contemporary musical. And it is set to wow London audiences from November 2019 at the Noel Coward theatre.

A letter that was never meant to be seen, a lie that was never meant to be told, a life he never dreamed he could have. Evan Hansen is about to get the one thing he’s always wanted: a chance to finally fit in.

From the award-winning songwriters behind The Greatest Showman, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is a deeply personal and profoundly contemporary new musical about life and the way we live it.

DEAR EVAN HANSEN has struck a remarkable chord with audiences and critics everywhere. The Washington Post calls it “one of the most remarkable shows in musical theatre history.”

The winner of six Tony® awards including Best Musical, as well as the 2018 Grammy award for Best Musical Theatre Album, DEAR EVAN HANSEN is directed by four-time Tony Award nominee Michael Greif and features a book by Tony award winner Steven Levenson and a score by the Tony, Grammy and Academy Award-winning composers Benj Pasek & Justin Paul.

  • DEAR EVAN HANSEN has won the Drama League Award for Outstanding Musical Production and for the off-Broadway production, two Obie Awards, a Drama Desk Award, two Outer Critics Circle Awards and two Helen Hayes Awards.
  • The Grammy Award®-winning Original Broadway Cast Recording of DEAR EVAN HANSEN produced by Atlantic Records, was released in February 2017, making an extraordinary debut on the Billboard 200 and entering the chart at #8 – the highest charting debut position for an original cast album since 1961 – and went on to win the 2018 Grammy Award® for Best Musical Theatre Album.
  • A new deluxe version of the cast recording, including six bonus tracks and a pop cover from Katy Perry of Waving Through a Window is now available digitally.

This musical already has a glittering history. It first opened at Broadway's Music Box Theatre in late 2016, following a dazzling world premiere at the Arena Stage in Washington, D.C. During July 2015 and an Off-Broadway season at Second Stage Theatre in spring 2016. Nominated for nine Tony Awards at the 71st Tony Awards ceremony, it won six.

Expect a long line of excellent show tunes, including the brilliant Waving Through a Window, For Forever, Sincerely Me, Requiem, If I Could Tell Her, Disappear and You Will Be Found, this two-act wonder of a show will see you singing to yourself for weeks to come. It's unforgettable.

Who is it for?
The recommended age for DEAR EVAN HANSEN is 12 or more.

Blown away

Didn't know anything about this musical before I read some of the program right before the show. I was blown away .. all I could say after the show on my FB update was... "eh, wow?!!!!" And my friends who had already been in to see it, just answered .. "yea, right!!". It really makes you think of how we use social media and how we relate to eachother. The acting was mindblowing and the execution was on point. I would recommend everyone and anyone to go see this. Thank you for a great evening and experience.

Lessons for all

The stage is set, the story unfolds, and you find yourself in the middle of one young man's desire to be included. You're taken on an emotional roller coaster of sympathy, empathy, identity, and reality.

Words Fail (to accurately describe this stupendous show!)

After travelling 250 miles to see the musical I’ve been obsessed with for years, expectations were bound to be high. This show was everything I thought it could ever be and more. I could never put into words my delight when I heard the first chords of ‘Anybody Have a Map?’, (how amazingly talented the orchestra are!) or the feeling of hearing Sincerely Me, a song I know better than I know myself and butcher every time I shower, LIVE! I think I nearly broke my boyfriend’s hand squeezing it and my grin reached my ears. Honestly, I still tear up if I think too hard about it. The acting couldn’t have been better either. I truly believed Marcus Harman was Evan; wiping his sweaty hands constantly on his jeans, the perpetual awkwardness, what I’ve read in the book come alive on stage. The music, the choreography, the composition, (‘Good For You’ particularly, though all of the songs deserve an essay in their own right) made it absolutely magical. Dear Evan Hansen was worth every penny I spent. It’s a mercy to my bank account that I don’t live any closer, because I’d see it again and again and again. I urge anyone and everyone to see this show if you get the chance. Any doubts you may have will be shattered as the show starts, you don’t have to be a fan prior to have your mind blown, and it will be a fond memory for a long, long time to come.

A fantastic story line which plucks at the heart strings. Really highlights certain modern day issues all put together in a relatable and meaningful story. Great music as well!

self realisation and amazement

I bought my tickets very early on when it was first released, the tickets are very very high and steep, however it was amazing, there is huge credit to all of the actors in the show, I especially loved how Evan sang nervously it’s something I have rarely heard and found it amazing. I want to see it again and again. Seats are a little restricted but there was a good amount of leg room plus the bar was very close and you needed to walk through the whole row to get to any seats which was annoying.

Been waiting 9 months to see this - it was worth it!!

Fab new musical. Wonderful songs and moving storyline. Small cast of only 8 but not a negative. Loved having the orchestra set up high above the stage so you could get a glimpse of them. Lovely small intimate theatre.

Gripping story, incredible performances!

This is a story that will touch anyone’s heart, performed by a masterful cast. The acting and the singing were simply extraordinary. My eyes were glued to the action on the stage from beginning to end. Sam Tutty as Evan Hansen was flawless. His acting is sensitive and his singing voice soaring. The rest of the cast are stars in their own right.
